anchor

An anchor is an association between a stimulus and a response. NLP technique. It is a conditioned or 'set' cue that gets a specific response — invoking a state. Anchors can be set by yourself or someone else.

Example: String Around the Finger

Tying a string to your finger as a way of remembering something is an example of using an anchor. When you tie the string to your finger, you tell yourself to remember something, therefore connecting the string with whatever it is to be remembered. Whenever you notice the string — (and you will quite often, as it's strange to have a string tied to your finger) — you recall whatever you mentally connected with the string when you tied it.
